The Blue Onion pattern was originally manufactured by Meissen in the late 1700ís and was originally named the bulb pattern. This design was so popular that many companies tried to copy it and sometimes this confuses novice collectors. Meissen Blue Onion pattern wares have a very crisp look and the blue glaze does not bleed into the white porcelain. The other thing that sets the original Meissen apart from others is that the cross swords not only appear on the back or bottom of the piece, but on the front art design as well.
